CALGARY, June 23 /CNW/ - Terrex Energy Inc. ("Terrex") announces the issuance of 37,933,646 common shares for proceeds of $7,251,230 and the listing of its shares for trading on the TSX Venture Exchange.
Pursuant to its previously announced private placement offering of $5 to $10 million, Terrex raised $7,251,230 gross proceeds on the issuance of 28,593,438 common shares and 9,340,208 common shares issued on a "flow through" basis under the Income Tax Act (Canada) at issue prices of $0.185 and $0.21 per share, respectively. Management and Directors took up 18.7% of the private placement. All of the common shares issued pursuant to the placement are subject to a four month statutory hold period.
The net proceeds of the offering assisted Terrex in satisfying the listing requirements of the Exchange and will be used to commence an enhanced oil recovery program on its Strathmore property in southern Alberta; and to assist in identifying and acquiring, through acquisitions, joint ventures or participation arrangements, interests in additional properties where oil exploitation potential has been identified by management.
The common shares of Terrex have been approved for listing on the Exchange and are expected to commence trading on June 23, 2010 under the trading symbol "TER".
Participation of Macquarie
Macquarie Resource Capital Canada Ltd, ("Macquarie"), an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Macquarie Group Limited, participated in the private placement and has acquired a 9.9% ownership in Terrex. Additionally, Terrex and Macquarie have reached an understanding whereby Macquarie has the right to subscribe for additional common shares, such that their total investment in Terrex would equal $4 million. This subsequent private placement is to be completed by August 20, 2010 and would be at a price equal to a 10-day volume weighted average trading price of the common shares (the "Trading Price"), less the permitted market discount rate of 25%, subject to a minimum price of $0.185 per share. Concurrent with any closing of this subsequent private placement, Terrex would also issue to Macquarie share purchase warrants to acquire up to 2 million common shares of Terrex at an exercise price equal to the greater of the Trading Price or $0.185. The purchase warrants will expire five years from the date of grant and are subject to vesting provisions.
Terrex also announces that it has filed its unaudited interim financial statements for the period ended March 31, 2010 on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
